The program

This essential Law and Human Rights Program puts international volunteers right in the heart of the fight for social justice for the people of Cambodia. Love Volunteers work with a Cambodian Human Rights non-governmental organization that dedicates itself to the task of helping those in need. Volunteers on this fantastic program will be supporting people who face discrimination and human rights violations, including families forcefully evicted from their homes, and women and children who have suffered domestic violence. From working with individuals who face unfair charges or have had their basic human rights violated, to working with abused groups of women and children, this program is at the coalface assisting those at their most vulnerable. The work this program does can truly change lives and international volunteers are essential to its success. Experienced volunteer law and human rights practitioners are greatly needed to assist with the fight for justice in this beautiful, yet poverty stricken and corrupt nation.

Goals of this Project:

  • Fight for the human rights of the people of Cambodia
  • Build a fairer, more just society for the impoverished people of Cambodia
  • Improve the future prospects of Cambodia’s most marginalized citizens
  • Increase gender equality and the understanding of human rights

How you can help

Volunteers on this amazing human rights program will spend their time working on cases, programs and initiatives that will benefit these marginalized people and communities. Volunteers will work on essential projects to help monitor the human rights situation and provide support to local non-governmental organizations. They might assist in arranging public forums and workshops, in implementing new Human Rights Projects, writing reports and case studies, research projects, teaching English to staff members and developing ideas and new initiatives. This program gives volunteers the ability to work on a range of projects and to get stuck in and put their skills and knowledge to good use. Volunteers will gain amazing work experience, a better understanding of the human rights situation in Cambodia, and learn all about this amazing country and its people. Initially volunteers will work alongside local staff members, while they tailor tasks to suit past experience and training.

Volunteers on this program will participate in a variety of tasks and can expect to;

  • Work on human rights projects
  • Write reports and case studies and researching
  • Develop projects and initiatives

Typical day

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:30am Walk or take a Tuk-Tuk to the project site

8:00am Pre-start meeting with the project supervisor

8:15am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

Evenings Free time to relax, stay in touch with friends and family and explore Phnom Penh

Free-time activities

Cambodia's vibrant capital has overcome the hardships of a violent past to once again become a "Pearl of Asia". Whilst tourists are still drawn by the memory of the Khmer Rouge and their horrific Killing Fields (and rightly so, this should never be forgotten), the city itself is taking a cue from its majestic river and moving on. Chic, bustling bars and restaurants line the riverfront and streets beyond with patrons watching boats cruising, motorbikes and tuk-tuks buzzing and pedestrians strolling on by. The Cambodian people are courageous and incredibly hospitable and a stay in this city is not to be forgotten.

Volunteers on this program are accommodated in a friendly and comfortable Guesthouse in central Phnom Penh. A great way to connect with other volunteers in a safe and social environment!

Rooms are shared by up to 3 volunteers, split by gender and each room has its own bathroom with western-style facilities and hot showers. Fans are available for comfort in the summer months and bed linen is provided so volunteers need only bring personal toiletries and towels. Air-conditioning is also available for an additional cost.  

The second floor rooftop has been set up as a spacious communal area volunteers can utilize to relax and socialize with dining tables, sofas, hammocks, TV and DVD facilities. Wifi is available free of charge and affordable laundry services are available nearby. Everything you need in a home away from home!

Volunteers can also request to stay with a local host family who have been carefully selected and are experienced in caring for international volunteers. Host family members will speak some English and provide comfortable, private rooms. Lockable storage will be available for valuables.

For those wishing to stay in their own accommodation the program fees are adjusted as shown the Additional Info. section.

Please note that transportation to and from the placement is not included in the program fee. The cost can range from $6 per day to $15 per day. If you are staying for an extended period it may be possible to work from 'home' for some of the time to keep the cost reasonable. Simply discuss this with the local team on arrival.

Guesthouse
Food & Beverages

Volunteers on our wonderful programs in Phnom Penh are well catered for with breakfast lunch and dinner available daily.

Breakfast at the Guesthouse comprises coffee, tea, bread and spreads, cooked eggs and fruit. Lunch and dinner can be ordered from a simple menu of local fare at the Guesthouse. Lunch can be eaten in or packed to take-away, depending on the volunteer schedule. Dinner is a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of fellow volunteers in the comfort of the Guesthouse.

Volunteers are also welcome to dine out at any of the affordable and accessible local eateries. A great way to explore the local area and sample delicious local fare. 

All meals in the Guesthouse are included in the program fee.  Meals eaten out are at the volunteer's own expense.

If you have special dietary requirements please let us know ahead of time so that we can advise the local team. Strict vegetarians and vegans should  be ready to help with the cooking and shop for additional items if necessary.
